Elementary level


in this lesson, Ss learn about the phrases which collocate with get in a scary or dangerous situation. First, T shows two pictures to prepare Ss for the context. Then T writes down a model sentence and asks Ss to produce like te model to set the context of the TL. Then Ss do a controlled practice to use the phrases with get. Then Ss do a semi-controlled practice to write a situation by using the target language. Finally, Ss can practice freely in a group to produce sentences from the phrases they learnt or personalized situation that follows "so". T monitors Ss and give them feedback at the end of the practice.
